John 4:32

We all know that we need to eat well for our bodies to perform well on the field of competition.  How many of us know what feeds our souls well?  What keeps your soul from starvation and running strongly?  Jesus knew about soul food.

In the Gospel of John at chapter 4 and verse 32 we read, “But He said to them, ‘I have food to eat of which you do not know.’”

Jesus’ disciples were thinking with their stomachs, but Jesus knew how to feed His soul with something even better than pizza.  He knew that doing what God wants for us is even more satisfying than your favorite meal at home.  That’s the food the others didn’t know about.

In your life, don’t simply feed your stomach and let your soul shrivel up from starvation.  Feed it with rich relationships, with sweet music and literature.  Dine on satisfying study and wash it all down with generous floods of prayer.  This diet will satisfy your soul and will endure long after you’re dreaming about a milkshake from the Dairy Queen.

Have a great game today, and then celebrate with food for the body and the soul.
